I normally post on the Lyme Forum but wanted to say hello over here! I have suffered from panic attacks and severe anxiety ever since I could remember. I think I was about 4 years old and I remember my first attack and have been dealing with it for many years (I am 51 years old now).
I went to shrinks, psychologist, and finally a 3 month course run by doctors in which I did all the exercises but nothing helped. In the 80's I went to a hospital and they ran extensive blood tests on me (I was hooked up to some kind of machine) and the result was my serotonin leaks out.
Thus, today I take the Generic Paxil (20 mg a day) and I am fine. When Paxil first came out I was on 60 mg but slowly tapered down. I have been on 20 mg for about 4 years now with no problems.
Thank goodness for generic!
It's all about the Immune System mixed with a large dose of Positive Thinking...
This song is about my years with chronic lyme and being in remission for over 2 years:
